Police said Jamere Miller, 36, forced Wilson into his black 2020 Lincoln Nautilus, CBS News reported.
Officers said Miller was seen wearing a blonde wig during the incident.
On May 14, officials announced Wilson’s body was found inside the back of her car. She suffered fatal gunshot wounds.
Detroit Police Chief James White noted several search warrants were executed and the suspect negotiated his surrender around 2:15 p.m. the same day.
White confirmed that Miller and Wilson had previously been in a relationship but it had recently ended. He added that Miller has a history of domestic violence and is a “very violent person,” WDIV-TV reported.
Wilson’s mother spoke with the station and claimed the victim was “trying to get away from him” and “knew he was toxic to her.”

On Nov. 7, Miller was sentenced to 35-60 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder last month, WDIV reported. As part of the sentence agreement, a total of 10 other charges Miller was facing were dismissed.
Wilson's family spoke to the victim's killer at his sentencing hearing, according to WDIV.
“How would you like someone to do that to your mama? Or your sister?” asked Wilson’s grandmother, Pamela Golden. “You ain’t fit to live.”
Miller reportedly addressed the courtroom at the hearing and claimed Wilson wanted to pay off something they owed and he went after her for money. He admitted their relationship was toxic and apologized for killing her.
